Playa Coral Negro
Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico
The Cannery Beaches are known by several names: Playa Coral Negro, Playa El Balcon, Playa Balóoncito and Playa Escondida.
These two beaches are the least used in the area, except by local families. They love it because they can keep a watchful eye on their children who can swim while mother and father fish from the pier above. Note: 2012 – The fishing pier was removed several years ago.
The beaches, Playa Escondida and Playa Balcóncito, are also known as the Cannery Beaches, because in year past these beaches flanked a pier (no longer) belonging to an old abandoned tuna cannery. The beaches are easy to access by walking along the west bank of the marina and are hard to miss.
The Cannery Beaches are a group of beaches in Cabo San Lucas. These beaches are normally visited by locals of the area since they are not populated by many tourists – Playa Escondida, Playa Coral Negro, Playa El Balcón or Playa El Balcóncito)
This is a sleeper. A little hard to find. Park near the Dolphins Tank, (editior’s note: or the parking lots at Plaza Gali or Plaza Embarcadero) and walk in behind the Marine Base. Best early in the AM before the water taxis get busy. Really great Snorkel and diving. When the experts want a quickie this is where the go. Plan to arrive a 7:00 Am and be out by 10:00 AM.
